2000's Class History 

Before we even arrived at SHS, the infamous class of 2000 was already known and our crazy antics and unorthodox 
behavior were anticipated. We were completely naive and unexperienced, as were our first (out of many) advisors, 
Miss Congdon and Mr. Ataya. Our first goal was to elect class officers and begin organizing. We chose Tommy H, Lyz, 
Theresa, and Meghan. As Thanksgiving rolled around Mr. Ataya resigned and made room for Miss Redder. We began 
to strive and work long and hard (a whole week before the rally) on our skit, The Lion King. We were astonished to win 
2nd place for our poster, a great accomplishment for our freshmen class considering everyone else got disqualified. 

In the spring we designed our celery green and purple Spring Day shirts and Miss Redder so kindly took the liberty 
to order 150 of them (we still have some). We finished an interesting and relatively uneventful freshmen year by elect- 
ing new officers Carisa, Renee, Trisha, and Meghan and saying goodbye to Miss Redder and Miss Congdon while mov- 
ing on with new advisors, Mr. Munson and Mrs. Kingman. 

Our sophomore year was a rather disappointing time for our class as we came in last in both the Halloween hall wars 
and Thanksgiving Rally. After all, what other class would choose Sesame Street? The week before Winter Vacation we 
revived the old tradition of Winter Carnival and "proudly" took last place as our Miss Snowflake nominee got us dis- 
qualified with his nasty remark (thanks Jake!) As the year rolled on, we attempted many fundraisers to no avail, and 
ended the year with a relatively empty bank account and a prom to put on as Juniors. 

To start the year we elected new officers, Carisa, Renee, Trisha, and Nicole; and started once again with new advi- 
sors, Mr. L and Mrs. Lind. Our first class activity was the Hall Wars which, of course, became a fire hazard and were 
taken down. Next came Thanksgiving. Our attempt at a Senior skit, a big party, was a complete flop, as was our lop- 
sided poster. We did, however, plan and put on a great prom at the Crown Plaza to end our Junior year with a high 
note. 

On to Senior year, we once again had very little money but definitely had our share of advisors as Mrs. Lind and Mr. 
L resigned and Mr. McHugh took their place. Are we that hard to deal with? This year was the turning point for our 
class, however; we elected new officers, Carisa, Tom, Amanda, and Renee and finally began working together. We 
began planning for our skit and poster in October and spent many nights revising and casting the Big Day. Thanks to 
the underclassmen, as Thanksgiving approached, problems arose with all the other skits and it was decided that there 
would be no skits this year at the rally. Our attempt at a sit in to reverse this decision, though unsuccessful, was quite 
entertaining and very impressive; we even made the paper! Our first ever tie-dye poster was a great team effort and 
represented our class, "Dazed and Confused," but having fun all the while (By the way they were paddles, not beer 
bottles!). And finally we proved our class solidarity when we won the penny wars with more than double what the 
other classes had in total, too bad the sophomores had to be so unsportsmanlike! This has been our best year as a class 
and life's sure to only get better. As the class of 2000 moves on we remember all our times, good and bad, and all of you 
teachers who stayed at SHS and didn't bail on us. Thanks for four unforgettable years, we'll miss you and we know 
you'll miss us.

This season was a rebuild- 
ing one for SHS boys soccer

you could see the tremen- 
dous improvement through- 
out the fall. Under first year 
coach Michael Lund, every- 
one stepped up their level 
of play and did awesome. 
Senior Robbie Southard 
was chosen as a Southern 
Worcester County League 
Ail-Star.

In its second season, the SHS girls soccer team did very well. They did- 
n't win as many games as they wanted, however, everyone played awe- 
some. Under coach Richard Young, they learned and worked together • 
as a team. If this year was any indication, next year will be tremendous.

Spring Of 1999 




122 




Last fall the yearbook staff decided that it was no longer effective to produce 
a supplement to the book, which would have included all spring sports, prom, 
class day, graduation, and other events. Instead, all spring activities will be 
included in the next year's book. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we 
were unable to cover everything from the spring of 1999. However, the same 
format will be in place for next year making for no surprises and full coverage 
of the spring of 2000. We hope you enjoy this new addition to the book.
